Why Allergy Safe Snacks Are A Necessity In Classrooms

To keep kids with food allergies safe, lots of schools require nut-free snacks in the classroom and lunchroom. With an increasing number of children suffering from food allergies, it is imperative that parents, teachers and school administrators take steps to ensure the safety of their children. After all, nobody wants to see a child go into anaphylactic shock because they've eaten something they're allergic to!


One effective way to make sure the classroom is safe for students is by taking advantage of allergy friendly products. These foods are specially designed to be free from common allergens like peanuts, dairy, gluten, or soy, making them safe for even those with the most severe food allergies. Many of them are even made in dedicated facilities to mitigate the risk of cross contamination. Despite their allergy-friendly nature, allergy-safe snacks taste great - so much so that kids usually don't even realize they're eating something dairy and gluten free! 


The Big 8 Crate has a variety of snack boxes full of sweet and savory options, all free from common allergens and made in free from facilities. Our monthly School Days box includes 23 individual snacks - one for each day of the week! You can feel confident that your child is eating healthier at school with these allergy-friendly snacks. Our snack boxes are a convenient way to prioritize inclusive snacks at school and make life easier at lunchtime when everyone needs something different.
